from tuesday's election. and the president has won mitt romney has conceded the nation is moving forward. so what is the problem? usa today called it a combination of poor management lack of capacity and systemic dysfunction. the election supervisors are elected officials, so that's an issue, also miami dade management blames the ten-page complicated ballot for causing people to take as much as 40 minutes to fill it out. as many laws that were tried to pass this year to disenfranchise democratic voters it wasn't the legislation, but simply the long lines that held people up. that's mostly do to logistics beyond the law. former congress woman gabby giffords and her husband may be in court today facing the man who shot giffords killed six people as we faces sentencing. the struck a plea deal back in august, that gives him life in prison and spares the victims a long emotional trial. kelly will read a statement on behalf of the two of them, but the ap says now it is unclear who will appear and be reading any statements. he has been declared mentally unfit. we'
or losing it all and going backward with mitt romney. no way we can let that happen. so we'll give it one more push today here on the "full court press." good to have you with us but let's start out with all of the latest this election day from lisa ferguson. today's current news update. she's standing by in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. kind of hard to believe it's finally here but today is the day. more than a year of campaigning and billions of dollars spent on this election. and now it's all up to you. president obama is officially off the trail. he held an emotional final rally in iowa last night. where he got a little teary eyed in the state that started it all. >> but iowa, we're here tonight because we've got more work to do. we're not done yet on this journey. we've got more road to travel. >> today, the president is keeping his election day tradition of shooting some hoops then he holds his election night rally in chicago. mayor romney though is not calling
run by the democrats apparently had more effect than that entirely amount of money. >> romney shut down our plant. turns out that when we built that stage, it was like building my own coffin. >> i still love that ad. then rove comes up with the world's lamest excuse. >> they cut their winning percentage by over romney by about two thirds, but the president -- he succeeded by suppressing the vote. >> wait, wait, wait, obama suppressed the vote? obama suppressed the vote! you're a stitch, karl. and we continue to rub it in the faces about how wrong they were. >> obviously i think with the election results last night, do you want to offer an apology? >> we missed the north carolina senate race. >> yes you did. >> by the way, i didn't. i got that one right too. by wait, the most accurate pollster for the election, you will love that result. don't miss that. it's go time. >> president obama's reelection is a devastating blow. >> if obama wins, it's the end of the republican party. >> we are in a war. >> the republican party has to rethink strategy. >> we're going to wind by a landslide.
of the campaign. increased revenue but no increased marginal rates. that seems to buy into what mitt romney had been trying to persuade us. there is a way you can rejiggle the tax code to give you the revenue but nobody's rates would go up which would be nice but does it make sense to you since they adamantly refuse to close the loopholes that are the only route to doing that? >> no. and even if they were to come up, somewhere down the road with some loophole closers some deduction limits, that is still mathematically not going to do it. there's no way you can actually, again, get the deficit under control when we want to get the deficit under control. there's no way you can do that with limits on deductions and loopholes. there does have to be an increase in the marginal rate on the very rich. that's something republicans don't want to admit. what they are counting on is this whole supply-side mythology that if you simply keep taxes low on the rich, the economy grows faster and that growth almost by magic in fact, it is magic c

on nbc yesterday that voters not only said we want barack obama over mitt romney but we want -- we agree with barack obama on the issues. a whole range of issues of which pro-choice is definitely one. tell us about the pro-choice majority. >> we've seen the republican party track to the right on this issue very swiftly in this election. of course, you saw people like mourdock and akin go down in flames. this idea of should rape be an exception when it comes to abortion became really a national issue. it is a problem. >> bill: romney tried to soften it. we know where paul ryan is. the republican party platform says. no exceptions whatsoever. americans don't buy that. >> they don't buy it when you look at the exit polls. we saw an overwhelming majority saying that abortion -- women should have access and should remain legal. roe v. wade should remain in place. if you look at this kind of new electorate and of course, that's where the republicans really ran into trouble. they didn't realize the obama coalition,
. they are falling for this republican line of crap. republicans lost this election. this was mitt romney's deal. and president obama said we have to have an balanced deal we're going to cut spending to the bone, but you have also got to get rid of those bush tax cuts for the wealthiest of americans, and put it back where it was under president clinton, the greatest economic growth in our lifetime. americans went with president obama's idea. it's now time for republicans to accept this is what the americans want. but instead this is more republican propaganda, and i just kills me that so many of my colleagues in the media are falling for it. republicans are saying we'll break the pledge. who cares. they say they are going to break the pledge, bfd, they say they are going to offer new revenue. okay. sure. but where from? they say will not, no no, no, tax rates for the wealthy of americans. we will not raise taxes on the 1%. we will only accept new revenue from closing loopholes. that means your mortgage interest deduction is history, and your child care deduction is history. t
